I think it's inevitable NJ drafts Crowse. Very big fast winger who is apparently elite defensively at the junior level. Very physical and a good goal scorer. I think they take him even if they moved to 5 spot.
I believe they will be assistants as well. For Lou to still be head coach means he doesn't want to give Oates or Stevens the head job knowing he may get someone else to take the job in the offseason. If he was going to go with Oates next year it would have happened by now.
The issue - such as it is - with Coleman is that he's already 23 and he'll turn 24 in November. Now of course it's very difficult to predict how college players will do - I think there's a good chance he's an NHLer of some sort, but I think a 25 goal upside is very unlikely.
Yea I was thinking I should have put 20 goals, from the 3rd line 25 is unlikely.
